The History of Felixstowe Carnival

Felixstowe Carnival Association was founded over sixty years ago.

The exact year the carnival started is to date still being researched.
The aims of the carnival association is and will remain the same, working together as a community for the community.

Here are some facts the current carnival committee know:

Over the years the carnival has undergone many changes but the fun still remains!
In the past there was a Carnival King as well as a Queen and Princesses!
The royal court was crowned at an inaugural ball.
Before splitting in to their own respective carnivals, Trimley, Walton and Felixstowe all shared a procession travelling down the full length of the high road.
Wesel our twin town in Germany have often sent their Carnival Prince and Princess to take part in the Felixstowe Carnival Procession.

We are unsure as to how long our German neighbours have been taking part in the procession and as to whether or not we ever sent our Royal Court over to Wesel.

The theme for the 2016 Felixstowe Carnival was  Rio Carnival.
